RAWALPINDI: Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed on Thursday said that fencing along the Afghan border would be completed within two months.

Talking to media in Rawalpindi, he said work on fencing along the border with Afghanistan has been done by eighty-eight percent while forty-six percent on the Iranian border.

The Minister said Pakistan is not allowing anyone to use its land against any country, and other countries should also ensure it.

He said India would desire that peace is not established in Afghanistan; however, Pakistan has been making sincere efforts for peace in Afghanistan.

Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said Pakistan wants to have good relations with all countries, including India. However, he said, India will have to give right to self-determination to the oppressed Kashmiris.

Condemning the Indian Home Ministry for baseless allegation of Pakistan's role in a drone attack in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, he said India wants to hide its failure in addressing the Covid-19 challenge through such allegations.

Responding to a question, the Interior Minister urged the opposition parties to sit with the government to introduce electoral reforms for transparent elections in the future.
